Nuclear Abolition Forum Magazine

The Nuclear Abolition Forum features a periodical (available in hardcopy and as online PDF), which focuses on specific issues and elements (technical, legal, institutional and political) for achieving and sustaining a world free of nuclear weapons.

The Forum’s inaugural issue was released in October 2011 at an event held during the UN General Assembly in New York. It has as its theme the application of International Humanitarian Law to nuclear weapons and comprises articles from a range of high-level experts. Hard-copies are available from the UN Office of the Lawyers Committee on Nuclear Arms and the London Office of the World Future Council. Donations to cover postage and packaging are appreciated.

On 9 May 2012, during the Preparatory Committee for the 2015 Review Conference of the Parties to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, the Forum will host a special session on the topic of Moving Beyond Nuclear Deterrence to a Nuclear-Weapons-Free World.

The session will include discussion by a range of academics, policy analysts, diplomats and disarmament experts on the dynamics of nuclear deterrence in the 21st Century, and an exploration of the political conditions and security mechanisms that might be required to phase out nuclear deterrence in order to achieve a nuclear-weapons-free world.
This special session of the Nuclear Abolition Forum is being held as part of the preparation of the second issue of the Nuclear Abolition Forum magazine.
